To back up Oracle resources

  1. On the navigation bar, click the arrow next to Backup.

  2. Click New Backup Job.

  3. In the backup selections list, do one of the following:

    For Oracle RAC

    Expand the RAC fully qualified domain name under the Oracle Real Application Clusters node.

    Each node in the cluster uses the same fully qualified domain name. It is in the form RAC-<database name>-<database ID>.

    For Oracle resources

    Expand the appropriate node under Favorite Resources.

    The current state of the database appears in brackets next to the database name. If the database is down, you cannot select it for backup.

  4. To select data for backup, select the check box next to the item that you want to back up.

    If you select a container item for backup, you cannot exclude individual items in that container. You must clear the check box for the container item, and then select the individual items in the container that you want to include in the backup.

  5. On the Properties pane, under Settings, click Oracle.

  6. Complete the appropriate options.

    See Oracle backup options .

  7. To configure multiple data streams for backup, under Destination, click Device and Media.
